The UN Pays For "Intifada Worked" Signs In Gaza

The forced pull-out from Gaza of Israeli citizen-residents was accompanied by signs of Palestinians crowing about the success of the intifada. Palestinians have been complimenting themselves that suicide bombing works. And now we learn that the UN financed much of the pro-terrorism signage in the Gaza.

The NY Sun reports:

A special representative of the United Nations Development Program in the Gaza Strip, Timothy Rothermel, told Fox News that his office provided financial support for the production of materials that make up the Palestinian Authority's propaganda campaign, timed to coincide with the Gaza pullout. The Palestinian Authority's withdrawal committee developed and produced the posters and other items using U.N. money, Mr. Rothermel said.

In addition to the slogan "Today Gaza and Tomorrow the West Bank and Jerusalem," many of the materials displayed the logo of the United Nations Development Program, which operates in 166 countries and spends about half a billion dollars a year.

Asked by a Fox News correspondent about one of the banners bearing the words implying an impending Palestinian Arab takeover of the disputed areas, Mr. Rothermel, said, "That particular poster was prepared by the disengagement office with financial support from the United Nations Development Program."

This is not an anti-Semitic organization exactly how?
